The Bond Family Scholarship, established by Joseph F. '50 and Jane Bond, is awarded annually to entering students who demonstrate strong individual character, energy, academic promise and the ability to benefit from a Siena education. Preference is given to students who require this scholarship either to be able to attend Siena College or allow the student to enroll as an on-campus resident student. This award is based on financial need or academic merit. Selection of these students is made by the Financial Aid Committee. The scholarship is renewable for students who maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.6 or better with a proven history of achievement in activities fulfilling the Franciscan ideals of the College.
